In his conversation with Ingraham, Eric Trump continued to try to discredit the witnesses in the trial: “The main witnesses are a convicted felon who lost his license – and a porn actress.”

While the payments weren’t illegal, Trump allegedly manipulated the documents when refunding Cohen to hide the real reason for the transaction. This made the payments illegal campaign financing.

Then-presidential candidate Trump ordered payments to Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 US election and promised to return the money, Cohen said in court in New York on Monday (May 13).
